Grove is a modular electronic platform for quick prototyping. Every module has one function, such as touch sensing, creating audio effect and so on. Just plug the modules you need to the base shield, then you are ready to test your ideas. This Grove Starter Kit Plus is a great way for beginners and students to get started with Arduino. The Grove Base Shield drops onto your existing Arduino and lets you connect up to 16 Grove modules without any fuss. The Arduino headers are still broken out on the top of the shield making it very easy to connect other breakout boards and sensors to your Arduino. You also get a guide book with basic projects to get you started and help you to understand how to create more complicated projected with your Arduino.

Note: This kit does not include an Arduino board.

Comes with the following:

Base Shield
The Grove base shield plugs into an Arduino and is the foundation of the Grove system. All I/O ports of the Arduino are exposed and adapted into Grove connectors which include digital I/O, analog I/O, and specialized ports (I2C, SPI, UART).

Grove - Button is a momentary push button. It normally outputs LOW.

Touch Sensor
Grove - Touch Sensor enables you to replace press with touch. It can detect the change in capacitance when a finger is near by. That means no matter your finger directly touches the pad or just stays close to the pad, Grove - Touch Sensor would outputs HIGH also.

Grove - LED is designed for the beginners of Arduino/Seeeduino to monitor controls from digital ports. It can be mounted to the surface of your box or desk easily and used as pilot lamp for power or signal. Its brightness can be adjust by potentiometer.

The Grove - Buzzer module has a piezo buzzer as the main component. The piezo can be connected to digital outputs, and will emit a tone when the output is HIGH. Alternatively, it can be connected to an analog pulse-width modulation output to generate various tones and effects.

Rotary Angle Sensor
The rotary angle sensor produces analog output between 0 and Vcc (5V DC with Seeeduino) on its D1 connector. The D2 connector is not used. The angular range is 300 degrees with a linear change in value. The resistance value is 10k ohms, perfect for Arduino use. This may also be known as a “potentiometer ”.

Sound Sensor
The Sound Sensor can detect the sound strength of the environment. The main component of the module is a simple microphone, which is based on the LM358 amplifier and an electret microphone. This module's output is analog and can be easily sampled and tested.

Light Sensor
The Grove - Light Sensor module incorporates a Light Dependent Resistor (LDR). Typically, the resistance of the LDR or Photoresistor will decrease when the ambient light intensity increases. This means that the output signal from this module will be HIGH in bright light, and LOW in the dark.

Temperature Sensor
The Grove - Temperature Sensor uses a Thermistor to detect the ambient temperature. The resistance of a thermistor will increase when the ambient temperature decreases. It's this characteristic that we use to calculate the ambient temperature. The detectable range of this sensor is -40 - 125ºC, and the accuracy is ±1.5ºC

The Grove-Relay module is a digital normally-open switch. Through it, you can control circuit of high voltage with low voltage, say 5V on the controller. There is an indicator LED on the board, which will light up when the controlled terminals get closed.

Servo is absolutely a motion control device. Using a servo library built in Arduino IDE, you can move it to any position between 0 to 180 degrees.

RGB Backlight LED
This Grove takes I2C as communication method with your microcontroller for a colorful alphanumeric display. The number of pins required for data exchange and backlight control shrinks from ~10 to 2, relieving IOs for other challenging tasks. The LCD RGB Backlight also supports user-defined characters.

Moisture Sensor
The Grove moisture sensor can be used to detect the water content of soil. As the soil moisture level falls, sensor output value will decrease. You can calibrate and detect whether plants need water by observing the sensor outputs.
